The legal team of an alleged accomplice in the impounded rosewood at the Tema Port has stated that its client, who was cited as the importer of the wood, had nothing to do with it and was not a consignee.

According to the legal team of Felisco-Sun Company Limited, out of the 13 containers, six were confirmed to be carrying rosewood and were impounded at the Tema Port on Friday, August 27, 2021, but its client had no businesses or whatsoever to do with their importation.
